Subject: My Grandfather
This is the story of my grandfather's harrowing experiences during the First World War, leading to his eventual capture and mistreatment as a prisoner of war. I believed there were only a very few copies of his book still in existence. I have one; my sister lost her copy in a house fire last year. My son discovered there is a reprint available on Amazon and with some more internet searching, I came to this site. I a very happy to see my grandfather's book surviving a century later, and still relevant in regards to the horrors of war.

Subject: Arthur Gibbons
This is a very interesting story I have come across. as I have an uncle that is from England names Arthur Gibbons. As we well know this man is not my uncle , the story is interesting. I would like to know where i might could get a copy of this. As i would love to read more to see if he might be family history we do not know about.
